Train to Busan Director Returns with a Horror Show ‘Hellbound’ on Netflix

Netflix has a new Korean horror drama called Hellbound is on the horizon, just a few months after the phenomenal popularity of Squid Game, which has been hailed as “Netflix’s most successful series yet.” 

The world of Hellbound is set in a realm where select people have been told the precise time and date of their demise. Worse yet, when the time comes, enormous creatures appear and drag their souls to hell. Netflix published a great trailer in September depicting these creatures pursuing down somebody, but the majority of the series will focus on a strange congregation that believes the creatures are heavenly, with a variety of personalities investigating the religion and its cult-like leader. The plot is inspired by filmmaker Yeon Sang Ho’s webtoon, which is available exclusively in Korean.

Hellbound Trailer Netflix

The primary trailer begins on an ominous note, revealing the true nature of a Hellbound edict. Incredible hellish activities occurred right in front of audiences in the heart of Seoul. Strange beings sentence people to hell, and unearthly beings emerge at precisely the right time to execute the condemned in a terrible fire. 

The dominating voice of Jung Jinsu, the head of an up-and-coming religious group called The New Truth, rises above the absolute pandemonium caused by these unexplainable paranormal events. He says that only offenders are destined for judgement and that these events are the result of God’s intention to make humanity pure. The Arrowhead, a gang of his mindless supporters, takes the vengeance of those who go awry out of their own arms.

Chairman Jung is challenged by Min Hyejin, a lawyer, who claims that the demonstrations of hell are simply mystical phenomena. She teams up with a select people who are simply attempting to safeguard the damned and revert to the planet to the dominion of people rather than gods. They are up against The New Truth’s instigation of mayhem.Hellbound Netflix

Sang-ho, who directed Train to Busan and its sequel, continues to helm Hellbound’s whole six-episode run. Yoo Ah-in, Park Jeong-min, Kim Hyun-Joo, and Won Jin-ah will appear in the series.   

Death cults, ethical issues, and an Asian spin on Catholic conceptions of Good and Evil are all common topics in contemporary Japanese and Korean pop stories. There’s a lot of movement, yelling, blood, and devastation in this Korean gothic horror thriller helmed by one of the country’s best action directors. But that’s exactly why people tune in to a show called Hellbound.

Hellbound Release Date Netflix
